Location Info

* Postcodes are not very precise in some areas, so don't rely on them for an exact location.

Adventure Race: Fun end of term score event (find as many controls as you can within the time limit) with an optional orienteering challenge at select controls to test the skills you have been practicing this term. Examples from past years have included string courses, mini mazes, map memory courses, moving controls and tinsel (it is the last week of university term so Uni Christmas).

Juniors can take part if confident Yellow standard runners or if accompanied.

Remember your SI card and headtorch.

There will be headtorches and SI cards available to borrow and as the event requires 2 SI cards per person, we will be expecting you to need to borrow one but the Adventure Race is very popular so if you have a headtorch/SI card - please bring it. If you have two si cards, please bring both!

Club Training Nights Series Info

Training nights run on Wednesday evenings during university terms and in the summer, except when there is an orienteering league event. The evenings involve a variety of activities aimed at improving fitness while honing orienteering skills. Each week the training is held in a different location in or near Cambridge. We join forces with CUOC, the university club, so during the University terms the training tends to be in Cambridge, and further afield in the summer.
